Calvary University Theatre Arts
MARCH 16-20, 2022
Welcome to Calvary University’s Theatre Arts Department, where we strive to, “Make each day a story worth telling.” This Spring, we are producing William Shakespeare’s: As You Like It, a classic pastoral comedy full of romance and shenanigans.
Our production is set in the 1980s, a time of artistic exploration in popular media and unique, sometimes rebellious self-expression. Amidst the romance of Rosalind and Orlando, the play focuses on the contrast between the Duchess’s Court and its “World of Confinement” which is full of scarcity, failure, competition, and sabotage, with the Forest of Arden’s “World of Liberation” which is full of generosity, human connection, the divine, and unfettered imagination. And, since art is a natural product of imagination, The Forest of Arden will be filled with poetry, street performances, songs, and dances done in classic 80s styles. And that’s in addition to the boxing, graffiti, attempted fratricide, and the QUADRUPLE wedding!
Come join us in the World of Liberation! (You might just find yourself!)
